Our play, Bohemian Valentine, is a passion project of ours that we have been working on for two years now. Set in New York City, our play follows Michael, a young man who’s recently lost the love of his life. Over the past three years, he has been struggling from day to day, as he can no longer tell his memories from his reality. Trying to find a way to cope, he decides to start photographing his memories he spent with his girlfriend with a Polaroid camera, planning to take the pictures with him when he leaves everything behind. Bohemian Valentineis a darkly funny and frank look at love and loss, with an amazing, original score by Daniel A. Weiss (Assistant Conductor of the original Off and On Broadway productions of RENT, Musical Director of Anthony Rapp’s upcoming one man show Without You).
First, Boomerang Theatre produced a small staged reading of it in 2012 (Directed by Kent Burnham) and then Planet Connections Festivity selected it to be one of their 2013 staged readings, where it was nominated for Best Staged Reading, Best Actress: Tracy McDowell, and won Best Director: Kent Burnham. And now, the full staged production has been selected to perform in the 2014 New York International Fringe Festival! We are SO proud of the play and the cast is INCREDIBLE. Now we need YOUR help to help us bring this play to the New York stage!
